PUBG brings controversial bots to PC servers

Having been introduced on consoles last month, bots are now making their debut on PUBG's PC test servers as part of update 7.2, and I think it's fair to say some players aren't very happy about it. As explained by PUBG Corp, bots are being introduced in public matchmaking as a way to provide new players with easier targets and tackle the widening skill gap. Some have speculated, however, that it could also be a way to bulk up lobbies and reduce queue times due to declining player numbers. In any…

PUBG will start pitting you against bots if it judges your skills lacking

Yup, it’s happening. Bots are going to be joining your Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds matches—but only if you need some extra target practice. PUBG Corp say that bot opponents have been a “controversial topic” for the battle royale but that they think the widening skill gap between veteran players and the new chaff demands an easier entry to their murder islands. They’re relegated to the test servers for now but will likely be joining proper matches soon. (more…)

Please watch this man perform videogame soundtracks on his Mongolian string instrument

You know how it is. You think you’re into videogame soundtracks, then you go and hear someone perform ten of them on a Mongolian string instrument.

Songs from Horizon Zero Dawn (coming to PC this summer), Mortal Kombat, Dota 2 and Fortnite are just some of the ones he treats us to. He’s really very good. (more…)

League Of Legends client speed improvements have hit some snags

Several months into a project to improve the League Of Legends client, Riot Games say they’ve made measurable improvements but also hit a few snags. After making progress enzoomening client startup times, Riot say it actually backslid a bit. But they’re not done, they think some slowdown might be caused by the state of *frantic gesture* all this, and they have more plans for speed boosts. Maybe this time they actually will fix the client. (more…)

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has overhauled Vikendi, expanding its dinosaur theme park

The small snowy map of Vikendi returned to Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds with the start of Season 7 today, having been pulled from rotation in January for improvements. They’ve removed a few villages, added more cover in places, reduced the amount of snow across a lot of the island, and, most importantly, rebuilt the scrappy old Dino Park (which I did already adore) as the larger and flashier Dinoland. While you can’t ride its rusty ferris wheel or the broken rollercoaster winding around a volcano…
